The Riva splitboard excels in tight trees and steep, open bowls. Featuring a pow centric, Directional Multi Radial Camber-Rocker profile with a wide nose, narrow tail, Rugged Topsheet, Sintered Base and our Freedom Wood Core - the Riva floats effortlessly in powder, is nimble in tight trees, is stiff enough to hold an edge through chatter and crud, and is fast enough to keep you on top all day long. Add in our Split Tech for the uphills and you’ll have optimum skin traction, edge-hold and ease of kick-turns.

Freedom Wood Core - This is our paulownia/poplar splitboard core designed to be super lightweight and responsive for our ladies of shred.
Rugged Topsheet - Polymide is eco-friendly and made from castor beans. The topsheet is durable and resistant to scratches and scuffs.
Directional Multi-Radial Camber Rocker - A gradual increase from the nose to a more aggressive camber radius in the tail provides better pop/dampening on drops and control on bigger lines while reverse camber in the tip and tail help to keep you afloat.
Tip to Tail Carbon - Carbon fiber runs through the entire core from tip to tail to provide added pop and response.
Split Tech - We don’t skimp on our splitboards. You’ll see a full inner metal edge, complete with sidewall and dampening tape. Also, when facing a kickturn on a steep slope, you want all the help you can get - that’s why we balance our splitboards so that they are tail heavy.
Karakoram Ultra Clips - Ultra Clips deliver unmatched compression between board halves and they are adjustable so you can maintain even compression as your splitboard ages.
Boltless Bases - By using fine threaded bolts we were able to provide a smooth finish to our bases for easier tuning and greater speed.
Forged Tips - Stainless steel metal tip and tail pieces protect from damage and increase durability.
Rooted Inserts - Just like roots help keep a plant grounded, flax reinforcement in areas of the core help increase strength and durability.
Sintered 4000 Base - Fast ride, more durable, good wax retention.
Tri-Axe Glass - Multi-axis, stitched fiberglass laminate that offers a precise and responsive ride in any terrain or snow conditions.
UHMW PE Sidewalls - Highly durable sidewall that protects the splitboard's core from impact and increases torsional stability.
Stitched Tips - Our tip and tail spacers are stitched to the core to provide added durability.
1% For the Planet- 1% of our total sales goes to offset our carbon footprint and donate substantially to the National Forest Foundation.
Get Out and Give Back
For several years we've been hosting splitboard meetups to help others overcome the initial barriers of getting into the backcountry. Over that time period, we've noticed that we've been missing a portion of our community - women. We want to help change that.
For the above reasons, 10% of profitsfrom the Riva splitboard will go towards a scholarship through Backcountry Babes to provide AIARE education for women.
